Artists Statement


I am interested in harmonious and discordant structures in sound and the moving image, in particular the interaction between the two – how they together can inform and reinforce a topic or an experience and change perspectives, or if in dissonance, question values and emotional responses within the experiencing subject.


Over the past three years I have worked with video in combination with digitally composed soundscapes – natural sounds recorded in connection with the moving image that have subsequently undergone a digital transformation into something new yet familiar with the original material. Within this recent body of work I have aimed to take a more experimental approach, particularly in the structure and narrative technique, creating non-linear, psychological video and sound pieces that have poetic resonance.


My work to date has included single-channel video works, soundscapes and immersive audio-visual installations that deal with evocative meditations on perception, time, place and memory.
